look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Amber brown, slightly clouded, finger of thin head that does not stay long.

S - Bam! Bready, yeasty, malty right off the bat. Then your my nose moved to the hoppy notes.

T - Very well balanced. The hops and malt are equally abundant. Did not get the sweetness right off the bat that other reviewers noticed, but it was there on a less potent level.

M - Lighter than I expected from the amount of aroma and flavor, very simple.

O - Extremely well balanced brew on all levels, i will be buying this again.

Hazy brown/caramel color that would be absolutely perfect if it had a bigger head.
No distinct strong smells but what i do get is maltyness with some brown sugar and caramel.
Taste is similar to smells but a more 'normal beer' taste is prominent.
Mouth feel could be a little thicker but its got a good level of carbonation.
Overall...not my favorite by rogue. Its definitely a "safe" beer for beginners because it DOES have some flavors in there but it may be a little weak for the more advanced beer connoisseur.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass; no freshness dating. Hazy copper body with some brown tint mixed in. A nearly two-finger tan head that has decent retention and leaves spotty lacing.

The aroma is fairly light overall. Notes of sweet malt, yeast, and light fruit (apple) come through.

I actually like the flavor of this one. The malt seems roasted and that taste comes through nicely. The German hops present just enough bitterness to balance the sweetness.

Light to medium texture in the mouthfeel and very drinkable. Solid brew for sure; will definitely have this again.

A - Pours a clear copper color with a two finger head that lingers for a while. Really great lacing on the glass. A great looking breer.

A - Fruity and candy like smell. The hops seem to have a sweet citrus or tropical fruit aroma. With some added sweetness from the malts it makes this beer seem very sweet in the aroma.

T - Stars with a nice fruity and malty sweetness. As the beer moves to the back of your tongue the flavor picks up a slight bitterness. Easy to drunk and refreshing.

M - Light to medium in body. Flavor duration is moderate.

O - Really nice, and refreshing beer.
